Dear Comrade,

The bearer of this letter is our Party comrade.[1] I would kindly ask you to give her your advice and assistance. In particular, she has instructions to look for our Social-Democratic books and documents in Stockholm and if need be to send them on. These books, etc., are partly in the basement of the Stockholm People’s House (in crates), and partly, perhaps, with Comrades Börje&Bwhatthe;on or Björck (Bokhandel Björck & Börje&Bwhatthe;on, Drottninggatan. 62).

I trust that with your help the bearer of this letter will be able to carry out her assignment, which I consider extremely important.

With best regards,
N. Lenin
